Criterias of choice
To choose reliable and high-quality equipment for autumn or spring fishing, it should be borne in mind that it must have such qualities as:
- moisture resistance;
- vapor permeability;
- comfortable and ergonomic cut;
- light weight;
- optimal fit.
Experienced anglers consider membrane suits to be the best outfit for outdoor activities in the off-season. A high-quality membrane does not allow moisture to pass into the clothing, but at the same time removes steam from the body to its outer layers. In such equipment, the angler will not get wet even in the pouring rain and will not freeze in windy weather. Experienced anglers say that suits models with a low vapor permeability coefficient and maximum resistance to the pressure of the water column are optimal for fishing in bad weather.
For fishing in extreme conditions, it is advisable to purchase models of suits that have a warm removable lining. Such equipment will reliably protect its owner from cold and gusty winds even in the most unstable weather.
When buying a model you like, you should carefully research the quality of the processing of seams and fasteners. These areas of clothing should be covered with a moisture-proof tape or moisture-repellent impregnation. It should be borne in mind that clothes with poorly processed seams and locks will not be able to provide adequate protection in rainy and chilly weather.
The most convenient to use are models of demi-season suits, which have many capacious pockets of different sizes. In this case, preference should be given to those models whose pockets are protected by valves.
When choosing a suit for fishing, not only in the off-season, but also in winter, you should pay attention to spacious free-cut models. In the future, such equipment can be worn over warm clothing or thermal underwear. Additional protection from the elements is provided by elements of the suit such as a hood, windproof flaps, elastic cuffs and a waistband. When trying on the outfit, make sure that the cuffs and belt fit snugly, but do not squeeze the torso and limbs.
